GM Expands Cadillac ATS Recall for Sunroof Switches

2015 Cadillac ATS coupe 2.0T

General Motors is expanding an earlier recall of Cadillac ATS sedans and coupes that let people close the sunroof too easily.

According to a report in Automotive News, the 2016 ATS is now included and adds 4967 more cars to the original February recall for a total of 63,665 within the U.S. The 2013-2016 ATS models have sunroof switches that are flush with the roof panel and can automatically close the sunroof with too light a touch (federal law mandates the operation of such buttons to avoid trapped fingers). The previous recall, which installed surrounding trim to recess the buttons, didn’t work as designed and so all of those cars must get fixed for a second time. The recall was not yet posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Cadillac dealers are holding about 7000 cars and are not supposed to sell them until they make repairs.



Previous ATS recalls have included faulty seatbelt locks, front seats that could come off their brackets in a crash, broken shifter cables that could cause rollaways, and intermittently flashing brake lights.
